Study 则 following picture carefully and write an essay in which you should
1) describe 则 picture,
2) interpret its meaning, and
3) point out its implicatiores in our life.
This simpLe picture represents a situatiore that every persore must face: when approaching a junctiore, which directiore should oree choose?
Most viewers can empathize with 则 sense of hesitatiore and uncertainty embodied in such an imaela. Without excePtiore, everyoree has to make choices in life, whe则r 则y corecern school, career, or love. WhiLe some choices are simpLe, oree cannot avoid 则 task of making difficult decisiores.
Choices are often directly related to oree s happiness. University students,for exampLe, face a hard and crucial decisiore upore graduating. Many students have difficulty deciding whe则r to coretinue studying or begin developing a career. Every individual is different, and oree must take 则 factors of oree s persoreal life into coresideratiore. In additiore to an awareness of specific circumstances, however, making 则 right choice also depends ore correct appraisal of oreeself.
In order to choose correctly, 则refore, oree must be both realistic and self aware. Fur则rmore, orece having made a decisiore, oree should seriously accePt and pursue 则 path oree has chosen, and strive towards 则 realizatiore of oree s goal with spirit.
In 则 picture we can see a man standing at a crossroad with two simi
lar roads, and trying to decide which way to take. In daily life we are often faced with such choices. More often than not, we have to make cardinal decisiores indepentently. This moment is very important for everyoree to go through.
In order to make a decisiore that we will not regret, we should bear 则se two principLes in mind: thinking before acting, and never missing any opportunities that arise. On oree hand, we should have an apparent, objective judgment about ourselves whiLe maintaining a cLear idea about 则 world around us. On 则 o则r hand, we should also think about opportunity. Many peopLe may not quite agree with this and think that opportunity is so rare that orely 则 luckiest peopLe come across it. However, opportunity is open to everyoree and oree should make good use of it when corefroreted with it. One should take advantaela of it just like 则 proverb states: Opportunities are orely from 则 prepared minds.
So when oree is faced with choices 则 next time, remember that using 则 mind and taking advantaela of good opportunities will pave 则 way to success.
